Mz. imani is committed to an inclusive sense of earth based spiritual practice that encourages all people to return to their heARTs wisdom, and to explore the ceremonial roles of the drum, music, dance and art. She inspires us to actively engage with the spiritual energies of the universe, through community music, collaborative art, collective prayer and the co-creation of positive myths. She is a collaborator and works with people of all walks of life to activate a Living Prophecy of renewal, respect and harmony, and takes care of a Sound Chamber in Swannanoa, NC.
Mz. imani is a people’s artist, who consciously blurs the line between performance, art and ceremony. She calls our attention through the power of the drum, our collective imag-i-nation and the dance of the sacred elements. She invites and inspires the songs of our heARTs to come forward, while circumambulating the sacred fire. Here we open to contemplation and celebration of that which matters to us. That which may help the heART of Humanity to Heal.
Mz. imani is leading a variety of rhythm activities and ceremony at the 2017 Florida Herbal Conference, including Saturday night’s Fire Circle, and the following class:
SoulFire Circles: Tools of Transformation Through Art in Action
Mz. imani has been participating and instigating Sacred Fire Circles for more than 20 years, and this class will work with the basic principles of how to work with music, group energy and ways to support the collective to experience a “Primary Mystical Experience”.
This Art in Action, called SoulFire is sublime and beautiful. To participate and to witness this expression of eclectic prayer is healing for all people and the Earth, herself.
SoulFire is a circle that can hold the ferocity of the djembe, the subtlety of the Handpan, chanting, singing and spoken word pieces. This class is geared to share how to support what is happening on the energetic and practical levels of what is likely to occur at the Sacred Fire on Saturday Night.
Mz. imani will provide some maps that will help you see and engage with subtleties of physical and spiritual components that come together, as we welcome the helpful and higher frequencies of intention and change. It informs how we listen, play music, speak and circumambulate the Sacred Fire. Please bring a chant, your drum and ideas of collaboration.
